The use of technology is constantly changing the world around us, creating great opportunity to improve upon how we live and work. Advances in technology have enabled many industries to evolve in such a way that was unimaginable 20 years ago. In the world of clinical trials, the use of technology can offer tremendous efficiencies while reducing risk and improving data quality.
Rater administered tests, while vital to all studies, have the potential to introduce noise if not properly managed. Bracket’s electronic scale administration (eAdmin) combines the best of technology and years of clinical trial experience to provide systematic direction to raters, ensuring clinical value and quality control. eAdmin scales detect and prevent scoring and administration errors on key outcomes; enhance the performance of trained raters; and improve drug- placebo response detection. This is all accomplished without altering the scale content itself.
eAdmin scales prompt the rater and/or subject with different questions and information depending on the subject’s prior responses, making it easier for less experienced raters to administer the scales accurately.
The e-Admin scales have been an exciting development for us and are currently deployed in worldwide Alzheimer’s program under the direction of Dr. David Miller, Bracket’s Therapeutic Area Leader.
